taken for a fool




skirt: asos | playsuit: river island | necklace: asos | ring: accessorize

I've neglected blogging so much this week, infact I've neglected the internet all together. Instead I've been out every night with friends and I've had so much fun. Wednesday means the start of my working week though so it's back to normality for a while. I've been keeping up the gym and healthy eating too, with lots of help from the other Where Are My Knees? girls and have lost 2lbs since starting. I'm also considering taking up running! Visit Where Are My Knees? at 6pm to find out how I get my motivation to exercise.

I bought this skirt over a year ago from ASOS and I don't think I've worn it more than 2-3 times. I've been feeling a bit blah about my wardrobe this week so decided to take inspiration from Michelle's style and tuck my playsuit into this skirt. It's such a good tip, I can see myself doing it more often. I've also been playing around with my sister's curling tongs. She creates the most perfect ringlets using them but that's not really my style so I've just been giving myself some messy waves. I also cut my fringe last week and although it's something that no one else would notice, it's really short and annoying me so much. Thank god it grows quickly!

I'd also like to say hello to all of my new followers! I've been making more of an effort to follow and chat to more of you on Twitter lately (since Blogger's commenting system makes interacting with you all quite difficult!) so please feel free to follow me and let me know your username and I'll follow back.

  15. Oo your messy waves look fab - i'm not a fan of the ringlet look either, but whenever i use the old curling irons they never end up as loose and beach-like as yours...i'd love a tip or two!
    The playsuit tucked in is a great idea, and i love that ring - good old accessorize

  16. your hair looks amazing, it really suits you! and this outfit is just so cute, it's such a good idea tucking the playsuit into a skirt, i definitely need more of a play around with my clothes - sometimes it's so hard to dress in the transitional weather period! x

  23. kate - thank you :) x

    Krissy - Hehe thanks :) I really like the skirt now too! x

    Stacey - Thanks lovely. The lipstick is called 'red kiss' by Avon and it's brilliant. Lovely colour and very moisturising. It's only £6 on the Avon website just now. x

    Floral skirts.. - Thank you :) x

    Sophie - I didn't think of it either until Michelle started doing things similar and I thought I'd give it a try! It does make going to the toilet a bit awkward though! x

    Sophie Isobel - Haha, lots of bows! Thank you :) x

    Cupcake - Thanks :) x

    Klee - OKAY! No idea why I haven't worn the skirt more often - I do love it! :) x

    Fashion Junkie - Thank you sweetie :) x

    Ellieand - I have no idea how I do it - I can't even do ringlets! I don't section my hair, I just grab it bit by bit (and probably go over some bits a few times cos I'm not sectioning it), twist it around the tongs for a few seconds and use lots of hairspray!

    Jasmin - Thank you, it's a nice change from straight hair! I find it SO difficult to dress when the weather is like this! x

    Alex - Thank you :) I think I've got a veggie post coming next week on WAMK. x

    Gem - Thank you :) x

    Lily - Thanks :) It was a good idea… until I needed the toilet! Haha :( x

    Eloise - Thank you :) x

    Maria - I love the bows too, thank you lovely x

    Stundon - Thanks! x
